Sam and Jason arrive at the hotel in London to find Nikolas. With the help of the manager, who they pay off, they learn that he checked out and was headed to the airport for a flight to the Netherlands. However, the airline reports he never boarded it. They question the manager more and learn Nikolas left for the airport with his companion Ava Jerome.

Huxley brings Nikolas (temporarily being played by Nick Stabile) and Ava to his home and gets them settled into the blue room, named for his grandmother who mourned her dog’s death in it for a year. Nikolas insists he has a flight to make, but it turns out they are hours away from the airport, something they didn’t know as they happened to fall asleep on the way to his estate. Because fog has set in, Huxley claims it is too dangerous for them to go anywhere. They are so far out in the country that their phones have no signal, so they can’t call anyone. Huxley leaves them to get some refreshments, and Ava finds out he has locked them in. When Huxley returns, Nikolas insists they leave, but Huxley says he can’t allow that. Nikolas offers to stay if he lets Ava leave, but Huxley reveals it is Ava he is after.

Primetime news: Nicholas Bechtel in Stuck in the Middle

Julian calls Alexis at home and tells her that he will be back tonight and he expects a warm welcome. Later, Sonny drops by to see Julian, but Alexis says he’s not here. Sonny intends to stay and parks himself on the couch because he wants to watch Julian get arrested by the police, who have evidence against him. Alexis thinks he’s lying, so Sonny informs her the dagger has blood on it. Alexis says Julian is at work, so if he wants to watch him be arrested then go there. Sonny is shocked by her change in attitude and wonders if she has finally come to terms with the fact that Julian played her and is finally going to get what he deserves.
